Welcome to the Lost Fashion History of Dublin Tours, a series of walks which bring you on a trip down memory lane to Dublin’s hidden style history. I’m Ruth Griffin a fashion historian and writer and my mission is to show you the city through a stylish new lens. I developed the tours from a Masters thesis I wrote for London College of Fashion called The Lost Fashion History of South William Street, when I returned from London I wanted to share the secret style history of Dublin with everyone and that’s how the tours evolved, firstly for festivals across Dublin from Tiger Dublin Fringe, Culture Night and the St. Patrick’s Day Festival and then  I developed a programme of tours from this very space!

I’ll be back with a new programme for 2018 shortly!

Ya’ll come back now…

Rua Ruth

*The tours are also available for Private Hire, and for stylish Hen Parties, just drop me a line at for more details.
